With sister Brie busy creating future generations of fantastic wrestlers, I was wondering what would happen to the Bella Bowl this year. Nikki didn't let us down, though: she enlisted the services of Maryse to stand in for Brie as a proponent of the Atlanta Falcons, while Nikki repped the Patriots. Both ladies went with a straightforward combination of a team-jersey-type top (tank for Maryse, cap sleeve for Nikki) and black shorts. They enhanced the authenticity with team-colored gloves (but happily, they left the padding and helmets at home ;)). There were other similarities in style as well: the choice of long, wavy locks (absolutely lovely on both ladies!) and a strong eye+ pale lip combination, Maryse going with a gorgeous warm peach, while Nikki chose a lavender-taupe hue that suited her quite well. Where they really made a splash, though, was with those leather and suede embellished wedge sneakers! Holy hotness, Batman! I'm not entirely sold on the wedge sneaker trend, except in certain situations and this is one of them! Those sneakers kick this look into fashion overdrive by adding a massive dose of FIERCE. Literally, who cares about having to wear a team jersey when you can have those on your feet?! Nikki and Maryse do a solid job on the poses, although it's clear that Nikki is missing the always-obvious chemistry with her sister. While the stances are more standard and less risky, it's a credit to both ladies' excellence at 'shoots that they can nail these and keep them eye-catching. Among the snaps with the two together, there are some gems that work really well and have the polished vibe of a game-day ad-splash. For not being Brie, Maryse does an excellent job as the other half of this duo. Ooo..what if this carried over to the ring as well? I sure wouldn't mind seeing Nikki have a sexy, blonde partner with attitude and Maryse and fearlessness were made for each other :). Maybe? Pretty please? Take it under advisement possibly? :) If not, well...we'll always have this 'shoot. Enjoy the Super Bowl, everyone!
